This was not just so I could watch a movie but because the quality of the plane's public address system made it very difficult to listen to the announcements from the captain and the crew. Listening on earphones I was able to hear everything clearly. Why it had to take so long just to give me earphones I don't know."

Pros: "I do like the cheerfulness of the flight crew. They are very attentive."
Cons: "The water is doled out in small cups. Not enough!"
Cons: "Ground staff past security at Intl departures were unhelpful and scarce. The gate number on the boarding pass and screen did not coincide. Unlike other airports the screen was not the most recent information. Even when told about the discrpancy and mix up for many passengers, the mistake on the computer was not rectified"
Pros: "The comforts offered in business class was most standard. In other words quite good. The food was middling. Also, 12 plus hours on a plane requires a larger selection of films. Finally, add wi fi."

Pros: "The flight was ok, left late but didn't impact our arrival time."
Cons: "Tray table was very dirty, restroom not cleaned or refilled, generally unkempt."

Pros: "Boarding at the gate was atrocious. Very slow and not organized and we left late because of that. The crew was very nice. Food was good. Entertainment was ok. Movies were old and could have been up to date not enough bathrooms per amount of people on board (relative to other aircrafts)."
Pros: "They need to make the seating more comfortable especially with such looong flights!"
Pros: "Entertainment, comfort in flight"
Cons: "The crew was not too caring, and the food was really below average - same dish for lunch and dinner."
Cons: "I used kayak to book the flight and the website provided had the incorrect web address for checking in. When I went directly to the Ethiopian airline website they wouldn't allow me to online check in. I called the agency and I couldn't be connected to anyone. I missed the physical check in by 4 minutes and no one was at the counter to help me reschedule. Really disappointing."
Pros: "During my trip, I enjoy the entertainment. In addition the boarding was excellent."
Cons: "I did not really enjoyed the food. I would not say it was not good but it was not my type. Well I guess this not my type of eating. In another word, I'm not use to the craft of the food."
